Huna Teachings-Increase Calm Presence

Emotional calm is a valuable benefit for being more in the present.  The Fourth Principle of Huna is Manawa—Now is the Moment of Power.  In Hawaiian language there is neither past tense nor future tense, therefore, all time is present.  Serge Kahili King, PhD, in his book  Huna Ancient Hawaiian Secrets for Modern Living, shares the following Fourth Principle technique called i’ano (translates as “being here”) to increase calm presence:

Increase Calm Presence1.  Look and be aware of colors.  Pick out all the whites you see, then the reds, oranges,  yellows, greens, blues, violets, and blacks.  Next look at all the straight lines, and then  curved lines.  Finally look at the shapes of objects and how they relate to each other in space.

2.  Listen to all the sounds you can hear, first high ones and then low ones.  As you listen, you will begin to hear more sounds.  Try to be aware of how what seem to be single sounds at first are often made up of several other sounds.

3.  Touch  shapes, textures, also hardness, softness, temperature, flexibility, and weight.

4.  You may also want to include smelling and tasting.

When a person practices this technique enough, they will discover three things:  (1) Release of stress and tension; (2) An increased feeling of energy, vitality, and well-being; and (3) an expansion of sensory awareness that might possibly change the way they think about the world around them.

Huna Teachings-Increase Calm Presence

flowers for huna principles

Huna is a Hawaiian word adopted by Max Freedom Long (1890-1971) in 1936 to describe his theory of pseudoscience linked to ancient Hawaiian teachings. Huna, in its purest form is ancient knowledge enabling a person to connect to his or her highest wisdom within. My first introduction to Huna teachings were through reading books by Serge Kahili King, PH. D. Many native Hawaiians and academic experts generally dismiss Huna as New Age mythology, however, today I only want to share the following Seven Sacred Principles because we can gain harmony and balance by practicing these principles.

Fall in Love

I was fortunate to spend Sacred Time on the Big Island with Kahuna Kalei’iliahi and a small intimate group celebrating love, wisdom, and compassion ceremonies of the Ancestors of that ancient land.  Kahuna Kalei’iliahi has a lovely small book published called Messages from the Ancients.  I am so grateful that the Kahuna gave me permission to share with my readers passages from her book.  I chose the following because we all know love is healing.

Fall In Love

Fall in Love

Fall in love today…

Fall in love with the sun as it rises

and as it sets, say thank you.

Fall in Love

Fall in love today…

Fall in love with the moon as she rises in

the night sky,

and send it a kiss.

Fall in Love

Fall in love today…

Fall in love with the Light you see in a

child’s eyes

and the song of a bird.

Fall in Love

Fall in love today…

Fall in love to today with the wind as it cools your

face and rustles the leaves.

Fall In Love

Fall in love today…

Fall in love today as you touch the face of

your Creator through your compassion.

Fall in love today…

~Messages from the Ancients, Kahuna Kalei’iliahi

Fall in Love


Big Island Sacred Time

I was fortunate to spend a week on the Big Island with an intimate group of 13 individuals and Kahuna Kalei’iliaha to connect with our personal sacred time.  This is something we need to do for ourselves daily, but we fail to put ourselves first.  Taking personal sacred time doesn’t require one to fly off to an island or to go on a vision quest.  However, it does require to get in touch with what brings us joy, fulfillment, and love.  This can be nature, yoga, meditation, art, writing or anything that brings passion to your heart.    How often do we go to a park or our backyard and stretch out on a blanket and feel the energy coming up from the ground, or wake up early for a morning walk before the noise of the day begins?  How many times do we take the opportunity to smell the flowers?  This is giving ourselves sacred time.

Big Island Sacred TimeBig Island is home of the largest volcano in the world, Mauna Loa, which has not been active since 1984.  It is also home of Kilauea volcano that has been continuously active since 1983 and the most active on the planet.  This makes this island one of the most magnetic sacred energy locations to visit.  I was grateful that the news media did not keep me from attending this special event.  The current fissure lava flow and eruptions only effects 2% of the Big Island.  My greatest gift to myself was not being in fear.  Fear robs us from so much pleasure.  I would not have been able to experience the beautiful Akaka Falls shown above, or be part of a ceremony honoring the ancient ancestors on one of the largest lava fields shown below.

Big Island Sacred Time 5-2I found that one of my most personal sacred time awareness moments was climbing the steps up to the Akaka Falls and then back down. Taking time for myself and continuing to take this sacred journey is not always an easy climb, but then once I take the time needed, going forward is so rewarding.

Big Island Sacred Time

The lovely Kahuna gave us this message on our last night together and I share it with you.   Please repeat to yourself “I am Magnificent” when spending sacred time for yourself. 

Big Island Sacred Time

ALOHA’, which means ‘Love’ to all; and ‘MAHALO’, which means Thanks and Gratitude to everyone.




Tuesday's Healing Word Adventure
The definition of an Adventure is an exciting or unusual experience that might sometimes involve risks.  We also can enjoy the experience of an adventure through our senses of smelling, tasting, feeling, seeing and hearing.

“I doubt whether the world holds for any one

a more soul-stirring surprise than the first adventure with ice-cream.”

~Heywood Broun

Tuesday's Healing Word Adventure

 Going on a journey uncharted through a forest is an example of an adventure.  While studying Hawaiian Huna/Shamanism last week, I got to face possible fear on two healing adventures: One was a pitch black 1/4 mile walk on a road through the rain forest at 4:30 a.m.  The second was crawling through a long and very dark lava tube.  Both tested my depending on higher self, awareness, and trust.

Tuesday's Healing Word Adventure


My last week past very quickly while studying Hawaiian Huna & Shamanism from Dr. Serge Kahili King.  His course shared the following: “In the Hawaiian language, the word “goddess” would translate as akua, which actually means an idea, concept or archetype.  Shamans often personify these in order to work with them as sources of inspiration, or channels to the High Self…”

Pele-Goddess of Fire MagicI was staying in Volcano Village near the Kilauea Volcano.  According to Hawaiian legends, this is the home of the fire goddess Pele.  Pele is also known as the goddess of energy, creativity, passionate love and at times jealous wrath.   Her element is fire and she can be invoked to increase emotional or biological energy, motivation and focus.

Pele represents Shamanism Principle MAKIA:  Energy flows where attention goes, and attention goes where energy flows.  Change your experience by changing your focus.  I got to experience Pele on my last morning of classes.  Several classmates, myself and one of our instructors met at the volcano for sunrise chanting.  The goal was to get there while it was dark so we could see Pele’s red flames.  The instructor and I arrived a little late and didn’t get to experience seeing Pele.  However, the five of us did the sunrise chant, honored Pele and when we completed Pele decided to share her glow for me in the day light which I was told is very rare.  MAHALO, Pele for showing your fire magic!

Blanket Forgiveness Technique

I am so intrigued with the ancient wisdom of Hawaii and the voice of the contemporary school and movement called Huna that is being taught by Serge Kahili King, PhD.  I have shared several Huna Secrets in past blogs, and have decided to create a new category designated to the teachings of Huna.

Blanket Forgiveness TechniqueToday lets look at the following Blanket Forgiveness Technique that can be found in the book Urban Shaman written by Serge Kahili King, PHD:

First in practicing blanket forgiveness, you assume that in any current condition of pain or discomfort there is some anger involved, even if you don’t know what it is about.  Begin touching the area of your body that is in pain or discomfort with the fingers of either hand and say, “Whatever this is related to, I forgive it completely and it doesn’t matter anymore.”  Most of the time you will experience instant relief. You can continue to repeat this statement for one minute, with the full focus of your attention, anytime or as often as it is necessary to help remove the anger causing the pain or discomfort.



Tuesday's Healing Word Positive Energy

Definition of Positive Energy as it pertains to you and me:

 It is the strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity.

Tuesday's healing Word Postivie Energy

In the book Huna Ancient Hawaiian Secrets for Modern Living, author Serge Kahili King, PhD writes the following on Huna’s The Third Principle—Energy Flows Where Attention Goes:

“If energy flows where attention goes, then sustained attention—conscious or unconscious—gives power to the object of attention.  Dwell on sickness, and sickness will increase in your life; dwell on happiness, and you will have more of it; focus on lack, and the lack will be more evident; focus on abundance, and abundance will abound.  Of course, if your focus is mixed, you will get mixed results. It pays to pay attention to your attention.”

Tuesday's Healing Word Postive Energy

Whatever holds your interest that is POSITIVE will also attract to you emotional and physical energy.Tuesday's Healing Words Positive Energy

ho'oponopono peacemaking meditation

Ho’oponopono, pronounced “hoh oh pohno pohno is a Huna process that brings balance and harmony to one’s life.  It can be practiced anywhere and many ways.  This ancient healing practice was part of the long extended lomilomi training.  However, modern simplified versions are now being taught in workshops to make this exercise journey of healing and peacemaking more assessable.

Ho’oponopono healing is based on the following four statements:

ho'ponopono peacemaking meditation

The following Peacemaking Meditation is modeled after Vicki Howie’s “Heal Your Heart Chakra Using Ho’oponopono”, which you can hear on

1. Begin lying down, rest left hand comfortably on the second chakra and the right hand on your heart. Breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth and relax into a normal breathing pattern.

2. Bring attention to someone you are feeling some disconnection or discord with and place them in a beautiful place and start sending out love to this person. Visualize your heart being connected to their heart with a magnificent rainbow of colors.

3. Visualize this rainbow of colors carrying the following words back and forth to the two hearts connected. Start saying these words slowly to yourself: “I am sorry…Please forgive me…I love you…Thank you”

As you repeat these four statements, healing begins from within for yourself and the other person. Continue to repeat these statements as a mantra for as long as you feel it is needed.  This is another excellent bedtime meditation.
